The CVCC Foundation, Inc. recently presented multiple scholarships to Alexander Central High School Seniors to attend Catawba Valley Community College.
Dr. Dianne Little, Director of CVCC’s Phillips Leadership Institute, presented Brandon Mark Sipe with the $500 Catawba Valley Optimist Club Scholarship Endowment. This endowment was made possible by the funds from the Hickory Optimist Club upon merger of the Hickory Optimist Club and the Unifour Optimist Club into the Catawba Valley Optimist Club. The Optimist Club’s mission is to foster an optimistic way of life through a network of optimists, dedicated to the full development of their potential in order to provide ever-expanding service to youth, the community, and the world. The club exhibits optimism by supporting higher education with the hope of encouraging students to complete academic programs at CVCC.
Kendall Hanah Blankenship and Lydia Nicole Branson each received the $500 Taylorsville Rotary Club Memorial Scholarship Endowment. Established as a memorial to past Rotary Club members, the endowment enables and encourages students to develop their leadership potential.
John Noah Mast received the $600 Annelle Pegg Scholarship Endowment. Established by Pegg’s husband Bob and members of Pegg’s Sunday school class at Lakeview Baptist Church, the scholarship creates a memorial to wife, mother, and friend who believed education is a life-long process. A student majoring in the area of Computer Technology or Information Technology is preferred for this award.
Mackenzie Abigail Cook received the $1,000 Emerging Leader Scholarship. Because trained, dedicated leaders are so crucial to the future of a democratic society, the Emerging Leaders Scholarship was established to enable and encourage students to develop their leadership potential. This scholarship can be renewed for a second year.
Allison Grace Meadows received the $2,000 Larry Goble Memorial Scholarship. Friends and family gathered with Tammy Goble to develop the scholarship which pays tribute to Goble’s faith and serves as a blessing to the recipient.
